, the chinese currency has been very stable against the u.s. dollar. in the first eight months of the year, the actual performance of the rnb has been a little disappointed. it appreciated 1% against the u.s. dollar. in the recent weeks, it's regained strength. basically between now and year end, we don't expect a lot of movement in the exchange rate. but what's complicating the chinese government policy basically is that we have a leadership transition coming up and also the leadership is very concerned still about potential inflation coming back. so that's complicating their policy decisions in the coming months. >> do you read this appreciation as one way for beijing to experiment in ways of bringing down inflation despite the fact that a weaker currency would give more credence to their exports? >> i think that one day movement really doesn't amount to very much. in fact inflation has been on the downward trend for the past several months. last week inflation was only 2%. so near term, inflation is not a major concern. however, the chinese leadership doesn't want to ease monetary polic
